No serial console after bootup?



  • Hello. I just bought a PC Engine APU-Board and booted an old pfsense on it from mSATA. The booting went smooth and without problems, I just had to reassign interfaces via serial console.

    Then I ran a update to the latest version and after reboot the serial console stops working after bootup, means that I can not enter anything and the screen won't update. Why is that? Is it disabled by default somehow?

  • Anyone..?

    Which install type, Nano, full? 32 or 64bit? What version did you upgrade from?

    If you go to System > Advanced > Admin Access is the serial console enabled there?

  • I think it was full install on mSATA disk i386. I will check into the menu if the console is enabled there, maybe it got disabled somehow (although I didn't do it manually, I only made a update with the webGUI. that's why I wondered).
